The 2016 National Teen Library Lock-In will be held Friday, July 29. Each year, libraries across the United States invite teens to a locally hosted lock-in on the same night to celebrate summer reading with online visits with well-known authors, fun contests, popular crafts, and multi-player games. Each library, large or small, urban or rural, organizes their own activities (and times), and then librarians use digital tools to connect teens with each other and with popular YA authors. Some library events last several hours and others last all night.
If you are a librarian who is interested in learning more about the nationwide event, visit the NTL 2016 wiki to register and sign up for the mailing list. An online contact form is available for questions.
